Oh, I don't know. I didn't actually read the article. But if you believe that racism is limited to one party you're deluding yourself.

Not limited, no. But one party is number one with racists and is full of them while the other has one or two here or there.

I didn't realize the latest numbers were out. What was the raw data?

It is peculiar that Republicans have appointed minorities to the highest non-elected position in the country. I'm sure it's part of a "Some of my best friends are black" defense, but they seem really committed to it.

There are racists who want to help the disadvantaged races and racists who want to oppress them. Then there are people who don't give a shiat about race.

Your own party leaders are saying it. Do you think Wilkerson and Powell are lying?

I mean I could understand your out of hand dismissal of the blatantly obvious if it was Olberman or Kos pointing it out to you. But when your own party leaders are admitting "Yep, the GOP is full of racists," why do you continue to deny it?

Not all Republicans are racists. But almost all racists are Republicans. But come on, bring up Robert Byrd. You know you want to. Bring up those old tired lines about what people thought 40 years ago and have refuted them, while ignoring the fact that just this week Sarah Palin made blatantly racist statements.

If you're black, gay, a woman, or make less than a few million dollars per year, the Republicans hate you, and wouldn't mind it if you had as many rights as the average slave off the boat in the 1800s.

Yet they still have the support of about half the country.

We're a very stupid nation.

Powell only endorsed Obama cause he's just him. It's going to bite back when Romney wins.

You need to bring up the whole Dixiecrat thing. That's always a winner.

Yep. And if I were to go up to my estranged Father and tell him that the only reason he's voting for Romney is because he's white...

Can everyone just shut the fark up? Peas? And carrots too?

/miss my family, but I'm 'doing the devil's work by voting with my vagina'; so, I don't know that I'll ever speak with them again after this...
//fark you Fox, Limbaugh, Beck, Tea Party, etc for ruining what used to be a decent family. Now I have no one.

In before somebody starts crying about "broad brushes" painting the entire party as racists (not racist, just number one with racists) while simultaneously refusing to differentiate themselves from the racists.

OK, let's define a term here.

RACISM is a belief system that one race (usually white people) are inherently superior to other races.

Voting FOR a candidate because he's "one of your people" is not racist, any more than voting for Romney because you're both rich or from Massachusetts.

Voting AGAINST a candidate based on race implies (not proves, just implies) that you think the fact that he is of that race inherently disqualifies him for the job.

A more accurate term for most people's behavior - on both sides - would be "PREJUDICED".

You can't really "hate" property. We're property to them. A means to their ultimate end.

Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable.

Impossible. It is you, Larry, who is a racist for saying that other people are racists.

True, but if you wear your racism proudly for all to see, you're probably a republican.

I'm going to jump out on a limb here, and speculate that you're talking about Clarence Thomas. Two words my friend, Thurgood Marshall.

Silly Jesus: [ct.fra.bz image 311x327]


So blacks that have been voting for whites for decades (if they were allowed to vote at all) because of institutional, cultural, legal, and economic oppression are the racists?

As the song goes.

"Well if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before, my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am?
Well I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin
Know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies"

I don't think this is necessarily true. If it were true, Blacks would be more split in other Presidential races. The truth is African-Americans tend to vote Democratic instead of along racial lines. Otherwise Herman Cain would have had a lot more support from Black folk.

They did the same thing in 2008. Sarah Palin and Michael Steele were part of their great "WE GOT ONE TOO" strategy.

Obvious troll is obvious.

You know, I've seen many of your posts here, and I find them sane and rational. But I would like you to examine the quoted text and see if you can spot the dog whistle. It's there and it's telling.
